Remote Work Round-Up

By now we all know that working remotely can boost productivity, but how exactly can you do that? It can be difficult to make the shift from office to home, but Fast Company recently published an article detailing how to make the transition that much easier.

Basically, it all comes down to boundaries. It's about cultivating a space that won't distract you with the comforts of home, but is comfortable enough to help you be productive.

Fast Company cites a few ways remote workers can get into their groove. To start, do some prep work the night before. Collect your documents, both physical and digital, and organize them so they're prepared for meetings for the next day.

Next, make sure your workspace is clear and free of distractions. That means tidying up and decluttering your surroundings. And, if you decide to work from a cafe, make sure the environment is meshes with your working style.

Once you've done that, it's important to remember to not break from the morning you would normally have if you commuted into work. Sure it'll be less stress to make the train or beat traffic, but sticking to your morning routine will help set the tone for the day.

Finally, it's important to be around people and keep resting areas separate. Remote life can get lonely, so make sure to socialize yourself. And while tempting, it's probably not wise to take all of your calls from bed. Not only will it not keep you at your best, you might also start associating work stress with areas of your home that should be comforting.

How To Handle Conversations on Race with Your Non-Black Coworkers

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
